July 12, 2022 – “It’s really great to see the show getting accolades,” Macy said.

As one of the executive producers of her show, Macy will get to personally take home a trophy if “Dopesick” wins the outstanding limited or anthology series category. The Emmys will air at 8 p.m. Sept. 12 on NBC.

The winner of the outstanding limited or anthology series category figures to be either “Dopesick” or HBO’s “The White Lotus,” which received 20 nominations Tuesday. “The White Lotus” is a comedic limited series about the staff and wealthy guests at a vacation resort.

“I was totally entertained by [‘The White Lotus”], but the thing about ‘Dopesick’ is, it’s based on real stuff,” said Macy, a former reporter at The Roanoke Times. “It is a real story. You know how much harder it is to make a real story than to just make a bunch of [stuff] up?

“Because it’s a real story about a real serious issue that impacts now one-third of American families … it needs to win for that alone.”

Macy and her “Dopesick” colleagues will get to go up on stage at the Microsoft Theater to accept the award if their show is named outstanding limited or anthology series.

So does Macy have a dress picked out for the Emmys?

“I bought several dresses for the previous [awards] shows and didn’t wear them all … [But] I’ll probably get another one,” she said. “I’m a bargain hunter. I’m looking on Poshmark.”
